My mom made a cake similiar to this except she made her cake from scratch. I will definately try the Jelly part as it is reminiscent of the type that my mother used when I was a kid. Sounds great Sherard, thanks for posting. The Jelly that my mom used was red, and was called REX Jelly, but is no longer made now, and your method of combining jello with apple jelly sounds doable, and like it will be quite tasty. Mama added coconut to her cakes also after frosting with the Rex jelly. Thanks for posting. God Bless.

My Grandmother did this the way Rose Mary's Mom did, a cake from Scratch, and made it in 3 or 4 round cake pans. She also sometimes used Strawberry Preserves with Cherry Jell-O. She didn't always use the coconut on top.
Thanks for posting and for the memories♥
